A fun climb that looks a bit intimidating but interesting from the ground... Not really as much of a crack as the name implies but there are are enough cracks to make it pretty much well protected... With the exception of one move up top which is easily avoided by taking an alternate finish...

Start by climbing up the easy buttress below the right end of the Beehive Overhang to a ledge at the right edge of the overhang... Place some gear and make moves up and slightly left to a stance below a piton, clip it and move up the steep wall to another pin (half driven junk, i didn't bother with it) one or two moves after the pin there is a jug and a nice crack for a cam (conserve your yellow camalot if you do the finish i describe)... Climb up easy lower angle rock to a left facing horn/flake below a steep blankish wall... Start left and climb up and right (PG13) on a horizontal crack, pull up to place a piece(yellow camalot)... Continue up right with a high foot mantel move... Easy slab to the top and a tree to belay... The route is a nice straight shot up the cliff...


The right side of the left wall... climbs just right of the Beehive Overhang...


Normal rack... Couple fixed pins... Belay from a tree...
